Eilis Ni Dhuibhne : Perspectives

Eilis Ni Dhuibhne : Perspectives

Description

Irish writer Eilis Ní Dhuibhne has produced over 20 books since 1988: novels in English and Irish, short stories (predominantly in English), drama (predominantly in Irish), and children's/young adult fiction (in both English and Irish), woven through all of which are threads of folklore, linguistic interplay, and Irish/English literary/cultural history. Ní Dhuibhne's work also traverses many of those things that have come to exist as binaries in Irish life today: literature/folklore, high culture/popular culture, working-class/middle-class, urban/rural, women/men, girls/boys, girls/women, youth/old age, tradition/modernity, old Ireland/Celtic Tiger Ireland, local/international and, perhaps most controversially of all, Irish/English. Eilis Ní Dhuibhne: Perspectives is a critical anthology on the work of one of Ireland's best contemporary writers. Contributing essays are by scholars from Ireland, America, Canada, Sweden and Italy, and are the result not only of a diverse set of critical interpretations of Ní Dhuibhne's writing, but of an even broader range of knowledge bases and critical perspectives. The anthology is designed to showcase the breadth of writing produced by this talented and generically-diverse writer. The anthology includes two previously unpublished short stories: "The Sugar Loaf" and "The Man Who Had No Story," and her classic Irish language story, "Luachra."
